Limbourg, one of the most beautiful villages in Wallonia

  • The most beautiful villages of Wallonia

From its rocky spur, Limbourg overlooks the whole of the region. Take a stroll through this former fortress, wandering from one street to another, admiring the Saint-Georges square, paved with pebbles taken from the riverbed: the village kept its medieval charm. A real gem!

A preserved architecture

Capital of the former duchy of Limbourg, this village once was an invincible fort., strategically located by the Vesdre river, between the bocage and the Ardenne mountains. Its preserved historical centre is listed as exceptional cultural heritage of Wallonia, with many buildings listed as historical monuments. The Saint-Georges gothic church, for example, will take you back to medieval time. So will the village hall (Arvô), Fountain of the Blessed Virgin, its timeless streets and castles.

Art and history

Set in the former village hall, also the court of justice, right on Saint-Georges square, Espace ARVO is worth stopping by. The ground floor is home to the tourist office (the team will be delighted to share their favourite places with you) and also features a model of the village. You will find a lovely art gallery on the first floor, with varied exhibitions all year round.

Treats for gourmets

The Brasserie Saint-Georges, on the main square, serves a large choice of regional specialities, to be paired with one of the 100 beers on its menu. Its warm atmosphere is sure to enchant you.
